The Bronx Horns have established themselves as one of the best Latin Jazz and Salsa bands on the scene today. With the capability to perform Latin Jazz, all forms of Salsa (Mambo, Cha Cha, Megengue, Boogaloo, Bolero etc.) or a combination of the two styles, they serve up a dynamic performance every time they walk on stage. Comprised of former members of the Tito Puente Orchestra, their experience and talent is rivaled by few musicians on the scene today.
The band is made up of Latin Jazz veterans such as group leader Mitch Frohman on sax and flute, who spent 25 years with the Tito Puente Orchestra, Trumpeter Pete Nater, the legendary Bobby Porcelli on alto sax, the great sonero Frankie Vazquez and an all-star rhythm section rounding out the band.
The Bronx Horns inspire and create new groundbreaking concepts in the Latin music field by bringing listeners to their feet and delivering their music with a fashionable poise that can only be achieved by artists of their stature.
The Bronx Horns have earned mass critical acclaim and along with a devoted following by delivering breathtaking performances at the San Jose Jazz Festival, Marciac Jazz Fest, J.V.C. Festival, the Lincoln Center ‘Out of Doors’ Festival and top tier clubs such as Birdland and The Blue Note. The Bronx Horns continue the legacy established by their mentors Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria into 2014.

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
